Town Political Matters. City politics is very tume in Algona, the only contest over aldermen being In the Second ward, where L. J. Bice and S. H. Pettibone are both nominated. The First ward republicans renominat- ed Alderman Vesper by acclamation. . J.'Riice was nominated In the Second, in the Third a union caucus agreed upon P. L. Slagle, in the Fourth M. B. Chapin was nominated by the republicans. • . In Whittemore Gee. E. Boyle and T. E. McEnroe are having a lively set to for mayor. In the caucus Boyle beat McEnroe by 82 to 40, and now Tom is out on an opposition ticket. It will be lively as everything is in Whittemore. Bancroft has two tickets, Mayor Callanan and Squire Austin pitted against each other for mayor, This will also be a close race. The caucus which nominated Callanan was a lively affair. Swea City has R. M. Richmond up for mayor and there is no opposition. In West Bend Dr. Baehman is the candidate with no opposition. Ledyard, as usual, will have a lively political session. W. A. Wright heads the people's tteke't for mayor and J. W. Neister the citizens. The "people" and the "citizens" are pretty nearly evenly divided and a red hot election Is assured. Burt is harmonious with one ticket. Steve Nicholson is for mayor. Editor McMullen leads the Independent ticket at Wesley for mayor and E. Sanford the citizens. The caucuses were not exciting and the contest is friendly. _• Set-soli piettpte and ftftef &! tfttf dettls M&meinber his stay wllff ttny thlh| but pleasure and ftttuld be glad to heft? of anylsody «rhb BMld ketep ahywhe'fte hear even with the bid fellbft, -The tifi» fmld hotel bill hef-0 n mounts to $100 and there are Various other little amounts of from $S to $18 each ift the profit and loss accounts of other places of business.

KNOWN AS "OLD APPLETBEES." The Reputation of F. C. Mather, the. Tree Peddler, at forest City. The Forest City Summit notes the disappearance of the old tree peddler who forgot his board bill at the Thorton and adds this note of interest: "Old Appletrees" has again been heard from and, as usual, the information concerning him is such as hut adds to his reputation as a first-class confidence man. He has been a 'resident of Iowa oft and on for 40 years, and those' who know him in this part of the state have yet t6 hear anything about him that an honest man would be proud of, He has'swindled everybody he could fov lo! these many years, and if reports be true even walked off with the funds subscribed for the building of a. house of worship at Eioeville while a pastor —BO called—in that town. Last yeai he was at Forest City, The Hotel An- Mohday at 9 o'clock a telegram came to S. D. Patterson from Madison, Wls., stating that Alex, and Mrs. Patterson were dying. It was signed by young Albert Patterson. Mrs. Dr. McCoy and S. D. Patterson started east on the 10:20 train without any further information. This morning's Register tells the story in the following dispatch: MADISON, Wls., Feb. 25.—A tragedy, resulting In the fatal shooting of Mrs. A. W. Patterson by her husband and his death by his own hand, occurred at midnight. The question whether it was murder and suicide, or an act intentional on the part of both, seems solved by a letter by both parents left to the children, in which they say they have premeditated suicide for some time and resolved to die together. Opposed to this theory, however, is the fact that when found, the wife, who had retired and was in a night robe, had one arm thrown across her face, as if to shield it, and a bullet in the arm, while her husband wns fully dressed. The members of the household attended the revival services of B. Fay Mills during the evening and returned home in the best of spirits. The family came here in July from Algona, Iowa, where Mr. Patterson was a merchant, retiring on account of poor health. They came here to educate their children at the state university, which Patterson formerly attended. No motive was assigned for the deed. THE UPPER DES MOINES goes to press too eavly to add anything calculated to throw .light on this terrible tragedy. It now appears that Mr. Patterson and wife have not lived happily together, and had not long ago separated permanently. But she came back and the relatives here had been given to understand that they were getting on quite peacably, Mr. Patterson was a mild tempered man and his action is incomprehensible lo his old friends hero and to his relatives. Little gifls bake biscuits for a prize at Doxsee's hardware store, March 9 and 10—all of which 4| will be "fun alive" for the little girls ; but a funnier thing m, ,^| this connection is found in the fact that they will use %; -' Daisy Mills Flour. Must be the Daisy Mills fiour is all right or they wouldn't use it. Fact is, the little girls (and big girls, too) know a good thing when they see it—that's why they use Daisy Mills flour for the biscuit baking contest. YOU SEE THE POINT, OF COURSE. Good Cooking Makes Good Husbands In order to encourage the art of cooking among the little girls I have decided to offer the little '' Buck's Brilliant Range" displayed in my store window to the girl under 12 years of age who will bake the nicest and best baking powder biscuits. The contest will be held at my store on March 9 and 10, from 2 to 6 p. m. . The contest will be absolutely free to every uttie girl in the county under 12 years of age. The biscuits will be baked in a " Buck's Steel Range" and made from Daisy Mills flour. - Competent judges will decide whose biscuits are the best. The little toy range is a perfect range—one that will cook and bake with a " truly" fire. If you want further particulars call at the store. THE WEEK'S MEETINGS.
